Salt therapy, also known as Halotherapy in many parts of the world, can be very beneficial for all ages. Dry salt has natural properties, which are safe and show little to no side effects. Salt therapy is a safe, drug free therapy for all the family!
Looking at our overall health and wellness, salt therapy is an alternative, non-invasive and drugfree therapy offered as relief for a variety of health complaints to such as, strengthening the immune system, respiratory illnesses and combating skin conditions.
Salt therapy involves inhaling pharmaceutical-grade dry salt in a comfortable, controlled environment.
As you sit back and relax, dry salt is dispersed into the room. You then inhale the tiny salt particles, these will be penetrated deep into the lungs and bronchioles, whilst the non-inhaled salt particles are absorbed by the skin. This process leaves the respiratory system clean, helping to breaking up mucus and reducing inflammation resulting in clear airways and increased lung capacity amongst other benefits.
A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy, and an improved immune system. Once inhaled, salt can assist with increasing lung capacity by 13% along with aiding mucus and other irritants in the system to dislodge and expel easily. Additional benefits can include; improved mood, reduced stress and headaches, increased energy and better sleep patterns.
